Undercover

2017AOC Schaffhausen

Attention, a secret matter!

Deep dark tannins emphasize this red wine blend with its delicate fragrance spectrum of red and black berries, leather and tobacco. Like well-known cooks, we also have our secret recipe. This red wine blend consists of grapes from the Wilchingen region that just want to remain -UNDERCOVER-.
